Granton’s Community Tree lighting event is on the first Sunday in Advent – 29th November at 5pm.

Join in on Facebook Live

The lighting of the community Christmas Tree in the grounds of the parish church at the start of Advent has become a great annual event where the community gathers together to start celebrating Christmas. There is usually singing, mince pies, fun and a great gathering of people!

Different this year!
However we all know that Christmas is going to be very different this year, and our annual Community Christmas Tree Lighting will be no exception.

The good news is that we will once again be kicking off our Christmas season with a scaled-back event on the First Sunday In Advent – Sunday 29th November – at 5pm.

Be Part Of It
You can be part of your community by joining the event live on Facebook. You can watch as the tree lights are switched on at 5pm, then you can share photos of your own lights – and if it’s too early for your tree why not post a pic of a candle or welcome lights in your window?

Make an event of it and have some mince pies and hot chocolate ready to enjoy in the safety of your own home.

The tree will be up from 29th November right through the season of Advent and Christmas and into the new year, so why not take a few moments over this period to visit and enjoy the tree with the family. Make a bit of quiet time to look back on this very difficult year. The gates will be open and you are welcome to stand by the tree any time – of course following Government guidelines on social distancing!

Together we will remind each other why Granton is such a great place to be and that we can celebrate the start of the Christmas season even in these strange and unfamiliar times.
